Picual is the most important olive variety in the world and is the most widely cultivated variety in Spain. Olive oil produced from Picual olives has a fruity flavor with hints of almond and an aroma of apple. Compared to the Chilean or Spanish Picual, the Portuguese Picual is milder in flavor and consistency.
More mild than some of our other Picual extra virgin olive oils, our Portuguese Picual has a light, buttery consistency, with mild aromas of apple and ripe tomato. It also features a fruit forward on the palate, and nutty flavors with hints of almond, finishing with a fresh tart and gentle peppery finish.
Extremely versatile as a dressing or dipping oil. Complements a number of our balsamic vinegars, softening the vinegars' tartness while bringing their flavor to the forefront. As a dressing, pair with our Strawberry, Black Currant, or Cinnamon Pear Balsamic vinegars.
